A letter to our K-8 parents regarding Grandparents’ Day and the current state of the world regarding viruses and illness.
Dear K-8 parents,
Here at Zion Lutheran School, we have seen a number of notices from a number of organizations who are canceling or postponing large group events to try to prevent the spread of viruses and illnesses. No doubt you have seen some notices, too.
Because the threat to our area is low at this time, we have decided to carry on with our grandparents’ day events. We had 130 grandparents visit our campus for preschool grandparents’ day today, so we plan to have our K-8 grandparents’ day tomorrow.
We understand that many of our visitors tomorrow may not be comfortable being around large groups of grandparents and K-8 students. If your family would feel more comfortable keeping your children and grandparents at home tomorrow, we encourage you to do so, and Zion will not count students as absent tomorrow as there are no major academic subjects taught during grandparents’ day, and it is an early dimissal day.
Since purchases for food have already been made by our kitchen, we will issue lunch refunds on request only. Please submit your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org and allow us some time to get those refunds back to your families as next week we will be preparing for our school auction (which for now is still being held as scheduled).
As a church and school, we lift up all those in prayer who are affected and afflicted by illness and the effects that have followed. I also encourage you to reflect on our theme verse for this year – 2 Timothy 1:6-7, “For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God that is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God gave us a spirit, not of fear, but of power, love and self-control.” May God’s peace be with you and your families.
In His Service,
Mrs. Ananda Baron, principal
